Your very welcome Steven.

I remember one time at a High School library I tried to get a volume of Catullus (Roman poet) and they told me I couldn't unless I got a note from Mom. I guess that would be redundant in this day and age.

At the university level, yes, I've had to request things, but usually because the items are particularly rare and valuable. For instance, I had to special request this reprint of old trade union proceedings,

I don't see any reason why an item like THAT would need to be kept out of the hands of youngsters. Having said that, I thing some material could be limited, but only for kids, and then only on extreme occasions. For instance, would you give a copy of the works of the Marquis de Sade to a Middle Schooler?
